breaking poems nominated for American Book Award

Good news from the folks at Cypher Books:
Cypher Books is pleased to announce that breaking poems by Suheir Hammad has been nominated for an American Book Award!

Add that to the Arab American Book Award and to the fact that breaking poems and ZaatarDiva has been at the top of Small Press Distribution’s Best Sellers list for the last few months. Nice.

At VONA, Suheir made it a point to thank all everyone for their support in spreading the word about breaking poems and helping a small press with a select few authors keep coming out on top. This despite the fact that Cypher Books runs a very tight operation with little means to promote books other than promising they will continue “publishing today’s most necessary poetry.” It’s a promise that is resulting in true grassroots support and serious award recognition.

So what ya waitin for? Keep spreadin the word, y’all.
